It's working for Kerry L.
“I wasn't ready to go back with my 2nd; I was with my 1st. But you do the best you can!”
It will all work out. All the unknowns will get figured out, so try not to stress out about things you can’t control.
After the 3 month mark. I told my boss in person. I thought telling her face-to-face was the right thing to do.
Three months–the maximum allotted by my job. For my first child, I actually was able to have my summer vacation along with my leave, so I had 5 months of maternity leave with her. But technically it was 3 months of leave for both girls. For my first child, I really appreciated the 5 months. If it was 3 months, I would not have been ready. Four months is really the perfect amount of time for me, so I wasn’t ready to go back with my 2nd; I was with my 1st. But you do the best you can!
Grandparents! They helped so much in terms of watching the girls after work so I could try to catch up on life–and sleep!
As a working parent, I never expected getting out the door in the morning with the kids would be so hard and leaving work at the end of the day would be so much easier.
